The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of the accelerated rehabilitation programs between single bundle and double bundle reconstruction groups after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction(ACLR) by autograft.
The subjects were 12 soccer players, 6(3 males, 3 females)of whom have been treated with autograft single bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, 6 of whom with autograft double bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction(the same proportion in gender). The acceleration rehabilitation programs occurred five times a week for 20 weeks just after their operations. Among dependent variables are recovery ability test composed of Lysholm score every 5 weeks within 20 weeks after operation, range of active extension in flexion measured three times from 4th weeks after the operations to 12th weeks, isokinetic muscle functional test for checking the muscle function recovery done three times from 12th weeks after the operations to 20th weeks, one hopping test for functional recovery two times in 16th, 20th week.
The results of experiments in this study show some noticeable discoveries as follows: First, both groups simultaneously suggest, depending upon the period of recovery exercise, a significant variable in Lysholm score, passive knee extension range of motion, flexion range of motion in recovery ability test, also Isokinetic extension strengthening, Isokinetic flexion strengthening in muscle recovery ability test, Isokinetic extenstion/flexion strengthening deficit, one leg one hoping test, and one leg three hoping test. Second, there is no meaningful difference between both groups. Third, any corelation effect is not noticed between single bundle and double bundle reconstruction groups in proportion to the period.
This study concludes that the accelerated rehabilitation programs are recommendable for both groups in spite of the difference of operational methods in ACLR.
